Not yet. The applicant's lawyer has been trying to keep me in the dark. The I & A officer does not think it will help because the applicant says it it hurts him now and he filed for the claim as of 8-8-11.
Joseph, what aboout the delays in having a QME done by the plaintiff? Is there a time frame he has to seek treatment after filing a claim and receiving a list of a panel QME to choose from? Or can he delay and do it at his convenience? What about his lawyer not giving me any opportunity for discussion for an AME? I believe that is within my right???
